In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs? The primary care provider (PCP) is they lynchpin in any person's health care system. The PCP is the quarterback and should coordinate between all the different specialists that are involved in the patient's care. It is the job of the PCP to look out for the patient and ensure that all the disparate pieces come together for benefit of the patient. Additionally, education is a critical component of caring for a patient. The patient is better able to contend with the daily nuances of a particular disease process, if they understand that their symptoms are in fact a normal part of the disease. Understanding helps both the physical and psychological aspects of a sickness, injury or chronic illness. Often, addressing the psychological needs will help alleviate or even eliminate the physical symptoms. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I started as a firefighter/EMT at the age of 16 in suburban Philadelphia. As I grew and developed (EMT, Combat Medic, paramedic, phlebotomist, epidemiologist, physician assistant) I noticed how many of my colleagues were disinterested or irritated by their patients. I always felt that every patient should be treated as I would want my grandmother treated, with honesty and respect. I became passionate about advocating for the patient. I strive to make the patient better, even if better just means that they leave the appointment with an iota more understanding of the disease process than when they came into the meeting. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am an avid scuba diver. I have been diving in 17 US states and 11 different countries. I dive both professionally and recreationally. I visit Mexico on a regular basis, having been to Cozumel 28 times in the last 8 years. I am a US Army veteran and a firefighter/rescue diver with over 22 years of experience.

I’ve been very impressed by Circle. They are using technology to solve access issues in healthcare. The tech is impressive and the support staff and practitioners are very professional and kind. Well done.

Mikey

Ease of access to medical professionals. Great communication and response time.

Timothy

Easy to get appointments, provider is kind, very helpful and is committed to helping me. This app was there when my doctors ignored me for YEARS.

Ashley

Because they get right to the main issues. Most doctors I have seen go through a trial and error diagnosis that goes on for a year or more.

Marlee

They have made this service so easy and convenient. Communication is thorough, and their team of professionals are polite, efficient, compassionate, and clearly passionate about their work.

Raiden

Great experience and exceptional customer service! Made my experience so easy and manageable.

Terry

My provider was extremely nice and understanding, and I need that after the terrible care I’ve gotten in my tiny town.

Kay

It was accessible, period. I could get an appointment that was not months out like most local doctors. Gave me records that documented my history. Made it possible to receive care online/virtually.

Rosemary

Circle Medical has been a life saver! The ability to use insurance is key, as well as the availability and variety of providers. I found an AMAZING primary provider that is hands-down the best I've ever had. Plus, the convenience of video visits is fantastic!! I love Circle Medical!

Brennan

The process to schedule was easy, appointments were available quickly, and the practitioner was thorough, friendly, professional, and compassionate.

Xiomara

The providers have been wonderful appointments are easy and always on time. The staff is quick and very responsive in chat.

Fernanda

Easy and convenient, providers have great personalities. First time I actually felt listened to and heard.

Devin

I work all day and I have to take time off of work to visit the doctor. This is so much more convenient.

Eleanor

Circle Medical does a great job making health care easy and accessable. I especially appreciate my provider as she listens and cares about my needs.

Merna

My provider was excellent - empathetic, resourceful, and intelligent. I'm grateful I was able to connect with her through Circle Medical.

Marvin

I like the flexibility of virtual appointments.

Amanda

Been an overall positive experience where I feel heard and respected by doctors and staff.

Heath

I have already recommended it to my sister who suffers many of the same things I do, mostly for the incredibly stress-free telehealth appointments as in person visits cause me anxiety and are harder to get to with my schedule.

Anika

This service is amazing and the provider I am working with is friendly and very personable. I will tell everyone about Circle Medical!

America

My provider has been very helpful in helping me find the right treatment. She is patient and through. The platform is user-friendly and easy to use.

Carly

Super easy to schedule. Practitioners seem to care about the patient and aren’t judgemental about patient’s complaints/symptoms.

Heather

My provider is attentive, thorough, and always focused what is right for me. I never feel rushed and I always feel heard. And it is easy to make an appointment

Joy

Easy to schedule appointments, the chat is super responsive, and everyone I’ve talked to is friendly and helpful.

Pando

The best experience ever, I live in a small town where I know my providers personally and sometimes it’s hard to admit where you struggle. It was so nice to have someone that I could talk to in private and that listened and was so thorough and helpful in every way. Very easy experience and I wish I would have done it sooner! Great company!

Vivian

Wonderful experience. I feel heard. The virtual visit with the provider has been so positive. I feel I've gotten better care than I have had in my past in-person visits.

Emery

So easy to work with and around my busy schedule. My provider is amazing and I am loving the medical care that I am receiving.

Asher

Ease of use, professional support, and excellent medical providers make Circle Medical a great choice.

Dalton

I recommend Circle Medical to everyone. Before it would take 6 months to make an appointment, then I'd have to take a day off work, it would take 4 hours to go through and see the doc. Between driving there, checking in, waiting in the big waiting room, then the small waiting room, seeing the MA then finally the doc, it would be a huge day-eating event. Circle Medical makes it so easy! I don't need to take a day off work, no waiting in waiting rooms, same day appointments, you can't beat it!

Rodolfo

This service is incredibly convenient and the appointment availability is wonderful. If I have an issue a PCC responds to my messages very quickly and the providers (if needed) do as well. I cannot think of a single thing that would make this a better experience for me!

Gina

I have struggled for years with my health issues, but always ran into barriers in getting affordable treatment. With Circle Medical, I saw a provider, received a diagnoses, and am already on treatment. All within a few days! They listen and also make getting help so easy.

Luciana

I work in concrete finishing, & have very little time during my week. Circle makes it possible for me to still be able to see a provider. Absolutely ESSENTIAL service!!

Connor

I LOVE my practitioner from Circle Medical. She is caring and careful. She adjusts my meds as needed. She has made a difference in my health and wellbeing.

Gilberto

Circle Medical has filled the access gap to consistent medical care and taken the frustration out of getting appointments and prescriptions. Your service is second to none.

Elaina

I have been helped in every aspect of the word.

Annalisa

I have already recommended it to many people. I’m a college student and my university health center has several barriers that make it almost impossible for anyone to afford the services required to get ADHD treatment through them, even with insurance. Circle Medical is convenient and being an app with reminders that I can call from anywhere makes it helpful to remember and make appointments.

Kyle

I have had a hard time with my primary care physician helping me explore ADHD treatment. I was not sure where else to turn. This was so easy and uses my insurance.

Adalynn

My provider is attentive and listens to me needs. She addresses any issues I have. She is never late to our meetings.

Remi

Very good experience so far. My provider has been very wonderful -- very attentive and easy to talk to.

Joshua

I have NEVER had healthcare that was this accessible. Thank you.

Melanie

The service and care my provider has provided for me since being a patient has been second to none! It's changed my life to be honest. Highly recommend Circle Medical!
